Now, if you have been following this blog for quite some time you must be used to these unannounced breaks of mine. I striked again with my habit!
A hiatus like this has always been a forecast for big changes - last time I took nearly a month off from the blog I changed the website name, altered the layout, improved the content. A hiatus like this was always a consequence of a kind of dissatisfaction with my work in here. I find it hard to put time and effort in things that don't inspire me enough, because I am eager to grow.
My soul needs to be nourished with the art, music, literature, fashion that it longs for in order to become the creative and passionate person that I want to become. The soul is like a sponge that should never dry up - a soul that lives without passion will become hard and crumbly and will eventually fall apart.
But despite this eagerness to learn, to grow, to live a passionate life, I might have to work on my New Year's resolutions. I need to realize that the things I am not satisfied with in my life can be changed by myself to a certain degree. If you lose your passion for something, you can either give up or look for a possibility for change.
I realized that I didn't take this blog along on my journey towards becoming the person I want to be - in fact, it hasn't really changed that much at all. I put this website in a new crispy clean jacket, but the static formula has stayed the same. And that caused the dissatisfaction. This blog used to be my platform to stimulate my creativity and diversity, and inspire you, my reader. But I have grown. I feel like I have much more to offer to myself - and to you. As mentioned above I am a person of habits, and I feel like this blog has gotten a little bit rusty. My New Year's resolution will be throwing those habits OUT. OF. THE. WINDOW. I don't know how you feel about all this, maybe you love coming here. But I have been envisioning something slightly different, and I think you'll love it as well.
I simply needed the distance from working on my own platform to realize all this. I think that I should be able to pull it off, to create something more unique, something to be proud of.
And last but not least, I wanted to thank you. Thank you for sticking with me, I know a lot of you have been following me for quite some time now and I just can't believe that you keep coming back to this website with your ever so supportive comments. THANK YOU. I am looking forward to seeing you in the next year as well - and maybe a bit sooner!
